Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
Sorry that I gave the wrong dates in my first message of the above
caption. BPW as alerted me that the dates I gave for the lifespan of
Charles David Poythress were erroneous. To clarify now: those dates were
*not* mentioned in my discussion with the NC Archives when I called to
order the book. Instead they were just the results of me looking with
less-than-care at a listing of the various men of that name in my
database, when drafting my message to this List. (I got the birth year
of the photographer and the death year of his grandson, who happens to
be the man on the next line of the database index, & who had the same name.)
BPW also alerted me that "The CDP family picture on the Poythress
website should be dated about 1889 instead of 1891" (She & I had given
that 1891 date to Al Tims earlier, in her email of 2 Oct 2003 in which
she wrote me "Left to right is Charles David Poythress, Charles Vance,
James Sneed, John Alexander, Indiana Peru nee Twisdale, Benjamin Edison,
and in front seated is Effie, circa 1891.")
Would appreciate it if we can please learn what has clarified the date
to be 1889 now?
Due to Rootsweb's decision to close all mailing lists the Poythress group has moved to Groups.io/g/Poythress for continuation of the discussion list. The message archive (1997 - March, 2020) will remain accessible via Rootsweb.
